When Apple introduced the iPad 2, GarageBand was one of the showcased applications that created a lot of buzz. Why? Because the app is awesome and very useful people who love to create music, you don’t have to know how to play an instrument if you have this app on your iPad. The ads also showed off how you could create, produce music, record and even plug in your instruments to the iPad, it was an instant hit. The only bad news, the app wasn’t universal, and only available for the iPad 2.
Apparently Apple realized that it should make it available for every iOS device rather than keeping it tied to the iPad. Thus, Apple, today announced that the GarageBand app will hereupon be available on iPhone and iPod Touch as well, making it available on all Apple products. Yes, you’ll have a smaller display, but that doesn’t really matter when you can make sweet music and probably be the next Justin Bieber. Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice president of Worldwide Product Marketing stated;
GarageBand on iPad has been a big hit and we think customers will love using it on their iPhone or iPod touch. The innovative Multi-Touch interface combined with Smart Instruments makes it easy to create great sounding music, even if you’ve never studied music or played an instrument before.
If you’ve already purchased GarageBand on your Apple iPad, then you don’t have to pay for it, but if you haven’t, you’ll have to spend that $4.99 you saved for candy. This is worth the money though! The updated app now works on iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad, iPad 2 and iPod Touch(3rd & 4th Gen).
